Helpful, sage and always humorous advice from everyone's favorite blogging Auntie.
Disclaimer: Aunt Sweezie's forte is humor, so all answers will be of a humorous bent. She is not a psychologist (although she has seen some...), she is not a doctor, she is not a rabbi, religious leader, Girl Scout leader, or anything more/less than an Auntie with a sense of humor, a few (many) years under her belt, and is on a quest to be helpful. Aunt Sweezie's advice may have very little to do with reality and usually has more to do with her thinking she knows it all. If she can help you a little or make you feel better, that is all she can hope for! All inquiries will be kept confidential and no real names will be used.
Whether you ask for it or not, you will get the wisdom of Aunr Sweezie's middle-aged, know-it-all-ness. This gal has been around! If she doesn't know, she'll punt. All answers are given in love-mode. No diss-ing, or dat-ing, or dee-other ting. Wisdom dispensed with a large dose of humor.
Following an overwhelming urge at 50-something, I started homesteading on a small place in upstate New York. I support this venture/lunacy with a full time job an hour's commute away. My life is never boring.
